With its 6-inch screen, 23MP camera and NFC support, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra proves premium features don't have to cost a fortune.

If you're a casual observer of the smartphone industry you might come to the conclusion that premium handsets like the latest iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S device are the only products on the market. Companies like Apple would probably be quite happy with that misconception, but in truth there are plenty of smartphones out there across a broad range of budgets, many of which are just as impressive as the flagship handsets receiving the lion's share of industry hype.

Take Sony's Xperia XA1 Ultra, for instance. Despite being priced firmly in the mid-range market, it sports a 6-inch, full HD display, a sharp 23MP rear camera and an equally impressive 16MP front camera. Those are quality features, the kind that are more than capable of meeting the needs of most smartphone users. In fact, unless you've been upgrading your handset to the latest and greatest each and every year, the Xperia XA1 Ultra is likely to represent a significant jump in performance and functionality.


  • Sony continues to stick with its distinct if divisive style
  • Android 8.0 update extends functionality even further


  • 23MP rear camera plus a 16MP front camera is a strong combination
  • Sony's legacy in the professional camera business is evident here


  • Slightly under-equipped compared to similarly-priced handsets
  • Should still be more than adequate for most users


  • For a 6-inch phone, a 2,700mAh battery is a little on the small side
  • Quick Charge support offsets some of the pain of such a compact battery
